Hebridean Island to celebrate 25th anniversary

Hebridean Island Cruises, the UK based destinational upscale boutique brand,  is celebrating the 25th season of its luxury small cruise ship, Hebridean Princess, by offering guests the chance to sail on one of the original itineraries and save up to 25% off the cost of their cruise, the company said in a statement.

Hebridean Island Cruises has launch the 2013 Cruise Directory for Hebridean Princess and celebrates her 25th season with three original sailings being replicated include; ‘The Islands of the Inner Hebrides’, ‘St Kilda, the Inner and Outer Hebrides and the Small Islands’ and ‘The Islands of the Inner and Outer Hebrides’ – a replica of the first ever Hebridean Princess cruise which first set sail in May 1989.

In addition, Hebridean Island Cruises is offering a 10% early booking discount on all 2013 bookings made before the 15 June 2012, as well as an additional 5% loyalty discount for past guests. Guests booking two 2013 cruises with Hebridean Island Cruises at the same time will also receive 25% off their second sailing. New for 2013 are four new Footloose walking itineraries – providing walkers the opportunity to get off the beaten track and explore untamed landscapes - as well as partnership cruises with the NADFAS, the National Trust, and the Royal Horticultural Society.

 Hebridean Princess was built in 1964 as Clansman, a ferry to operate services in the Firth of Clyde region on Scotland’s west coast. It was extensively rebuilt before being introduced as Hebridean Princess and the 49 passenger vessel continues to receive regular refits each year during a winter lay up, usually in Greenock.
